5 Common Career Paths For a Staff Accountant

Accountant

An accountant is a professional whose primary task is to prepare, keep, examine, and interpret financial records. Most accountants are in charge of a wide scope of finance-related tasks, either for private individuals or for large-scale businesses and organizations they are employed with. They make sure that financial statements and records are accurate and comply with laws and regulations. They also compute for taxes, prepare tax returns, and ensure being paid properly and on time. As they keep track and record the flow of money, they can offer guidance on how to reduce costs, enhance revenue, and help in profit maximization.

Tax Accountant

A tax accountant is a professional who works with clients to produce tax return documents that follow tax laws and regulations while keeping them updated on their return information. Tax accountants must determine tax strategies for their clients that may minimize or eliminate tax payments while arranging audits with taxation authorities. They prepare tax documents for different clients, including private companies, non-profit organizations, and private individuals. Tax accountants are also required to obtain a bachelor's degree in accounting and should understand business concepts.

Finance Analyst

A finance analyst is responsible for evaluating a company's financial data and historical reports to assess investment opportunities and provide accurate financial statements in support of business strategies and company performance prediction. A financial analyst's duties also include suggesting recommendations to boost operations efficiency and grow revenues, researching the current market performance and economic trends to adjust budget goals as needed, and managing client portfolios. Finance analysts must have excellent critical and analytical thinking skills to identify the best actions for the company's profitability.

Senior Finance Analyst

A Senior Financial Analyst's role is to oversee the financial aspects and manage fellow analysts in a company. Among the tasks of a Senior Financial Analyst include conducting research and analysis, providing forecast in revenue and expenditures, creating financial models that would suit the company and project more sales, and take part in the planning of finances. Moreover, being a Senior Financial Analyst means leading a team of skilled professionals in the same field of expertise.

Treasury Analyst

A treasury analyst is a professional who manages and analyses the financial activities of an organization that can include cash flows, liability obligations, and assets. Treasury analysts are required to execute the daily cash management of the organization such as cash forecasting, investing of excess cash, and running a hedging program in interest rates. They must present monthly reports and daily briefings on cash flows to senior management and provide advice on the financial operations of the movement of cash. Treasury analysts also update treasury policies and procedures for the organization to comply.

Staff Accountant Jobs FAQs

Can a staff accountant make 100k?

Yes, you can make $100,000 per year as a staff accountant. While possible, it is unlikely to earn over $100k as a staff accountant because even higher-paid positions do not typically earn more than $65,000 per year. The average annual salary for a staff accountant is $52,650.

Learn more about this question

Is staff accountant a good job?

Yes, being a staff accountant is a good job. Accounting is an industry that will never go away and tends to have high income potential and significant room for growth.

With the high growth of accounting needs, many companies today compete to attract skilled accounting and finance professionals at all levels.

This is due to high levels of business growth, new regulations, and new system implementations. And, out of all accounting roles, staff accountant is one of the most in-demand positions.

Because of this, compensation is rising for the position. Additionally, companies are more concerned than ever about the retention of current employees. This means investing time and money to help employees continue their professional development, which paves the way for them to advance in the role -- and beyond.

Becoming a staff accountant offers a person the potential for salary growth and career advancement. If an individual has a four-year degree in accounting and a year of experience, they are in a great position to land a staff accountant position.

Learn more about this question

Is staff accountant higher than accountant?

Yes, a staff accountant is a higher position than an accountant. Depending on the organization, the title of staff accountant is typically a higher role than an accountant, often referred to as a junior accountant.

A staff accountant is a certified accountant that holds a mid-level position between junior and senior accountants. The staff accountant typically has similar duties to the junior accountant but has more experience in the field.

Staff accountants and accountants are similar in their financial duties and can hold similar credentials, but staff accountants have a higher level of experience which means they also typically take on different responsibilities than a junior accountant.

Since staff accountants hold more credentials, they have been trained to handle more specific or higher-level tasks. Entry-level accountants focus more on balance sheets, budgeting, and expense tracking, where a staff accountant generally completes larger projects like helping with budget expansions or planning for large purchases.

Accountants and staff accountants can follow similar career paths but have different opportunities available depending on the firm they work for, the credentials they hold, and their career goals.

Staff accountants typically advance to senior accountant positions or other management roles, where accountants in entry-level positions work up through mid-level positions first.

Learn more about this question

What are the job requirements for a staff accountant?

To become a staff accountant, a person needs to hold a bachelor's degree in accounting and have at least two to three years working as an accountant. These are the base requirements to get a job as a staff accountant.

However, a person should also have strong computer skills and be especially adept in Microsoft Excel. In addition to having excellent knowledge of accounting principles and basic math, it is important to possess soft skills that will make you stand out.

These soft skills include time management abilities, a collaborative attitude, and good communication skills.

This is because staff accountants will work with a variety of people and complete many different tasks, so they need to be good communicators and time managers in order to complete everything on time and correctly. Ideal staff accountants are master multitaskers and have excellent details and deadlines.
